Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by paul Disappointed, but....
We like the style of this fan a great deal but are disappointed in its performance. We are replacing an older fan from about 1990 and hoped this fan would perform better with updated style. The Banyan fan has a high speed of 5160 CFM that apparently moves less air than my old fan. There is a small bit of air noise on high that is ok for family room but would be noisy for some bedroom users. There seems to be a big drop in speed from high to medium. Medium speed is too slow and slow speed moves a very small volume of air. The old fan lit up the entire room; this Banyan fan is dimmer. I'm in my 60's and prefer brighter lighting and the two 60 watt candelabra bulbs seem dim. I even installed two 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs rated at a brighter 500 lumens each but still too dim for my taste. I intend to move this fan to a less used room and purchase a fan with more lights and a high speed above 7000 CFM, also with 60" blade width and better blade pitch to move more air.

This fan is so beautiful and it operates without a whisper of any noise. I would have given it 5 stars but it did not come with a remote, which other fans I've purchased of lesser quality have included.
I don't care for the light kit...they are candle bulbs and don't give off much light.
Overall, I'm so satisfied that I put up the negatives.
High quality Hunter and it is so gorgeous!! Don't hesitate to purchase.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TV looks nice, but light is not very bright
I was disappointed in the brightness of the light. If you expect it to be the sole light in a room, I wouldn't recommend this fan.
It also doesn't seem to push as much air as I would have expected.
It is very close to being a very nice fan, but misses slightly for me on these two issues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZDYI We love them!
The instructions were clear and installation was quite easy, even for a novice! We bought two and they look wonderful and are absolutely noiseless when running. Planning on getting more.

This is one of the quietest fans! I had a very noisy fan in the master bedroom and knew Hunter was one of the best brands out there, so I found this one. LOVE IT! You only know it's on because the air is moving, no matter what speed it is set at. Well worth paying extra for!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beaks911 Banyan 52" Brushed Nickel
As others have mentioned light output is a little dim compared to our old style one with the individual globes. A couple of blades were scratched but at that point of the installation it was not going to be returned. I would suggest unpacking the blades and checking them initially if the color is of importance. Amount of air circulation is excellent and it is very quiet. Install took a little over an hour with no problems.
